ID сборки: 8589e48-760cc4d-f39cf3d-1b2857e-60db978
When you save input file to DOC word97/2003 drawing is lost
Comment 6 sasha.libreoffice 2012-01-17 07:33:02 UTC
Reproduced on LibO 3.5.0 beta 2 on Fedora 64 bit
Comment 7 Petr Mladek 2012-01-23 09:59:14 UTC
I wonder if the pictures are in a special format. Objects added via the "Drawings" toolbar are saved correctly. So, the missing objects must be something special.

I add some experts on drawings export into CC.
Comment 8 Petr Mladek 2012-01-23 10:04:45 UTC
Igor, do you know how the problematic pictures were created? Are they imported into LO from another application? Which format is used during import?

simplified testcase

In this attachment only one text frame and one line inside
Somebody managed place drawing object, anchored as character, inside of text frame.
Comment 10 user6 2012-01-26 11:56:18 UTC
As I understand it was drawn in Word as a vector graphics and then I imported it to LO. (You can edit each element during LO; so I wonder why format is meaningful)

input file2

if I copy several vector boxes outside text frame then it reproduced partially.

i.e. vector objects inside text frame are not exported to .doc.

best example of input file

Attached file is created in LO from scratch.
There is one vector object inside box/incut.
And there is one object outside it.

So during exporting to .doc, the object inside box is not saving.

Already [Reproducible] with "best example of input file " and "LibreOffice 3.3.3  German UI/Locale [OOO330m19 (Build:301) tag libreoffice-] on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit). Blue rectangle in frame is missing after export.doc, close, reopen
Comment 15 Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2012-05-31 09:16:42 UTC
Same result with "input file".

Can you confirm that only Drawing shapes !in Frame! are affected?
Comment 16 user6 2012-06-07 09:52:21 UTC
Yes, I confirm, only in frame drawing is affected.

Removing MAB.

@Igor - policy is that we don't nominate our own bugs to MAB. If a QA member feels like this should be a MAB, they will place it on the list
Comment 25 Olivier Crête 2013-12-20 00:26:43 UTC
Still happens in

Here are some easy step to reproduce without any special files
1. Create a new Writer document
2. Create a new Drawing
3. In the drawing, draw a rectangle
4. select the rectangle and copy it (ctrl-c)
5. in the writer document, paste the drawing (ctrl-v)
6. in writer, right-click the rectangle and select "Caption"
7. Click ok in the caption dialog
8. Save as a Word .doc document
9. Reload the file using File->Reload

Comment 27 Joel Madero 2014-03-25 23:15:44 UTC
No confirmation that this is a regression - removing regression. 

If it's a regression please let us know what version of LibreOffice this worked in. Thanks
